How much to suck on the spent grounds?

As a conservative, I don't what people spend their money on, but in the back of my mind I think some people have more money than brains.

I guess if you want to be able to report, breathlessly, to your Cocktail Party-going friends on something new and exciting, this is something to do.

Kudos to the Grower for a great marketing triumph.

Ain't no cuppa coffee worth $55. Tells me something about you if you're spending your money that way.

As in, "A _____ and his money..."

The leader in über coffee was the civet poop stuff. Think this one has them beat...

At 2:59 in the morning, it just seemed worth it.

The perfect cup of coffee for those hard working miners heading off to a long day at the golden plume asteroid mines.

The 909 hits sophistication!

Oddly enough one of their locations was my local coffee shop for many years. Been there a lot. Nice, casual, entirely unpretentious place next door to a Boot Barn. Great place to hang out that has also won awards for roasting.

Time to sell off equities.

I hate seeing my cynicism confirmed, but it's their money.

Hint for the 909: You don't have to buy the cup to brag about being there. Lying's free and you get the same benefit.

Timed? So everyone drinks simultaneously--or in succession?

I'm verklempt.

Big Mike said...

I suppose he'd be pissed if I asked where the sugar and creamer are?

Just joking! I drink mine black and thick -- a product of 2:00 AM debugging sessions in the days of my youth.

It would almost be worth the $55 to buy a cup of the stuff and then do a Danny Thomas spit-take.

Do I get a free pet rock with that?

Patrick said...

It's like very expensive scotch. You don't drink it because it tastes so good, you drink it so you can talk about it

I paid $10 for a cup of very average coffee just outside of Heathrow Airport, when you allowed for the exchange rate, so this doesn't seem that far out of line for a price. Since I can't actually taste it, I can't tell you.

I read that advice in the book How to Talk about Books You Haven't Read.

Excellent read!!

Like Paddy O, I've been to one of Klatch's locations. Great change from S-Bucks - makes you want to sit a spell and tell tall tales. $55 is pretty steep, but I suppose there are some who can tell you it's worth it.

I agree that people are free to spend their own money however they choose. I also remember hearing Robin Williams say, "Cocaine is God's way of telling you you are making too much money."

So the lexicon of wine-snobbery has migrated to coffee. I should have known.

Great coffee, no pretense

It's High-Falutin'. Almond Milk and Stevia.
